University of Burgundy

BCI programme in Quebec

Study in Quebec for your semester or year abroad in a university where the courses are taught in either French or English!

Le Bureau de cooperation interuniversitaire - BCI (interuniversity cooperation office) is an agreement which creates links between French and Quebecois universities in order to facilitate student exchanges. This agreement allows students who are registered at a French university to spend either a semester or a year in Quebec studying at one of the dozen French or English speaking universities that participate in the programme.


Take a look at the 11 Quebecois universities who participate in the BCI programme, and the programmes which are offered to exchange students.


Eligibility

  • Be a student at the University of Burgundy.
  • Have successfully completed at least the first year of bachelor studies at the University of Burgundy.
  • Possess a strong academic record.
  • Have a good knowledge of the teaching language at the host university (either French or English).
  • Be selected by the BCI programme.

Duration

  • A semester or a whole academic year.
  • It is possible to combine your BCI exchange with other mobilities offered by the University of Burgundy. If you go on exchange with BCI, you are able to go abroad again later in your degree, for example with the Erasmus+ programme.



First Step

  • Take a look at the BCI website to find out which study programmes are offered to exchange students and choose three universities in your order of preference. Read carefully the individual conditions for each university and chose which modules you may wish to take.
  • Choose your study programme (taught in French or in English) at the University of Burgundy, which you will remain officially enrolled in if you go abroad. You must contact the person responsible for your future study programme at uB so that they can approve if your proposed exchange project at Quebec is suitable within the framework of your studies.


Second Step

If the responsible person at uB approves your project, contact the International office from mid-December in order to get the personal access code which will allow you to complete the forms on the BCI website.

  • To get the code please contact Nela JOURNAUX: Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser., 03.80.39.55.16, Office R24 at University House (Maison de l'Université).
  • Complete the online form on the BCI website. Print it, check it through and sign the application form. Make sure that you attach all of the required information and documents to the file, respecting all of the individual conditions for the particular establishment that you wish to go to.
    Send the file to:

Maison de l'université
Pôle International / International Office
Bureau R24 / office R24
Esplanade Erasme
BP 27877 - 21078 DIJON CEDEX

  • The International office will then send your application to the Quebec universities.
  • The deadline for handing in your application to the International office for 2018/2019 is the 9th February 2018.
  • No applications will be accepted after this date.


Third Step

The response from your first choice university will arrive between April and June, depending on the university. If your application is accepted by the university in Quebec, you must complete the International office's online application form before the 15th May and follow all of the instructions that you will receive by email in order to create your online account. If you do not receive a response from the university in Quebec before this time, fill out the International office's online form anyway before the deadline.

  • Access to the International office's online application form.
  • Once you have created your online account and your application has been approved by the person responsible at the uB for your future study programme, you will be able to access all of the necessary documents to complete your application.
  • You must download, complete and sign these documents (electronically or by hand) and then upload them, scanned if necessary, to your online account. There is only one document that you must hand in to the International office as a paper copy. In your online account you will find also your learning agreement. You must fill in the list of courses that you wish to take, allowing you to successfully pass your year.
  • While you wait for the electronic confirmation of your application, you can download and complete your learning agreement. Take a look at this example to understand how.

You can apply to study abroad within the Erasmus+ framework or outside the Erasmus+ framework AND within the BCI programme at the same time. If you are accepted onto both of the mobilities, it's up to you to choose the one you want and there are no consequences if you decline the other offer.


The responsible person for your programme at uB must approve the modules that you plan to take at the host university.

In order to find out more about the courses proposed:

  • take a look at the section List of programs offered to exchange students on each BCI university web-profile. Note down the programme codes that interest you and go to the official university website. Then paste the code into the search engine on the website to find the possibilities;
  • note down a list of modules that you may wish to take and submit it to the person responsible for your study programme at the uB to get their agreement;
  • the goal is not to find exactly the same courses as those at the University of Burgundy, but to make sure that your subjects correspond with your study area;
  • in order to successfully pass your university year you must obtain a minimum of 30 ECTS credits per semester. Whilst choosing your modules, don't forget that one Canadian credit is worth 2 ECTS credits. 30 French ECTS credits = 15 Québec credits.
